Yep, take existing foam and go to new tank and squeeze it out a few times to put cloud of mulm into water. You have just seeded new tank with all the bacteria/fungi/microbes that has developed in old tank since it was set up. Your existing aquasoil is already seeded and new aquasoil will be releasing some ammonia to feed the AOB bacteria. Then simply start ghost feeding a couple days later, pretend your lightly feeding a couple guppy once a day to keep organic nitrogen and phosphorus levels up and presto, you’ll have a functioning ecosystem up and running in no time.
